Reinventing yourself and surprising your fans is just about the hardest thing an artist can do. All the more so if you’ve pioneered the genre. Unless your name is Marcus Füreder aka Parov Stelar, and you’re the most successful Austrian artist ever next to Mozart. On ‘The Burning Spider’, this 42-year- old electro swing progenitor experiments with old blues by personal heroes such as Muddy Waters and Lightning Hopkins. If you were worried this resulted in slow and mournful tunes, think again. The music swings like a mother – or what did you expect? He celebrated the kickoff of his ‘The Burning Spider’ tour with 12,500 fans in the Wiener Stadthalle. Not bad but surely his favourite festival can do so much better.
